The thing about arts and crafts, is that they have a real unique quality that cannot otherwise be found in the mass consumer and materialistic normalcy of holiday shopping. For this reason, we are seeking more authentic and aesthetically enjoyable gifts for giving. We are almost certain that the recipients will be more pleased.

Another place we visited yesterday was the Christmas Market, or Weihnachtsmarkt, at Spittelberg. This cozy eighth district of Vienna is breathtaking, especially this time of year. The crisp airs seems to accentuate the colors around you, making the blues and whites of the sky and snow clash with the warm colors of the wood and fire, and even faces.
